Jay Z and Beyonce have announced the details of their On The Run II stadium tour. Rumours of the mooted jaunt have been swirling increasingly intensely of late, but the sequel to their On The Run Tour is now definitely happening.
Kicking off Wednesday, 6 June in Cardiff, UK, the international outing will stop in 15 cities across the UK and Europe, with the 21-date North American leg beginning July 25 in Cleveland. The full itinerary can be found below.
The On The Run II tour is presented by Live Nation Global Touring in association with Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment and Jay’s Roc Nation. Tickets will go on sale to the general public starting Monday, March 19 at LiveNation and all usual outlets, according to a press release announcing the tour. On-sale dates and times vary from venue to venue.
News of the tour slipped out last week when Beyonce’s Facebook and Ticketmaster pages announced a date for the tour, on July 30 at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field — and then both posts were quickly deleted.
The On The Run tour, the pair’s only previous joint trek took place in 2014, immediately following two successful solo runs – the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and Magna Carter World Tour, respectively – as well as two acclaimed albums, Beyoncé’s surprise self-titled release in December 2013 and Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail a few months prior.
That Bonnie and Clyde–themed tour was a smash success, featuring more than 40 songs that spanned the entirety of their catalogs. The routing primarily covered North America, with 20 dates across the U.S. and Canada. The European leg consisted of only two dates in Paris, which were filmed for an HBO special. Even as the tabloids forecasted the couple’s marital decline, they presented a united front onstage, treating audiences to epic two-and-a-half–hour shows packed with beloved hits including ‘Crazy In Love’, ‘Show Me What You Got’ and ‘Flawless’.
